    They don’t port for fights they all log on just to deny active clans from taking them then they all log back off again.

    Doesn't play it. But knows its a shit game.

    *thinking*

    This seems more like the whole siege/territory control system is currently not working correctly. If they log in to the game to defend their holding, that means they *are* active players, because they have a subscription, so they have a right to a holding as much as anyone else.

    The siege/territory system should change to reward people who play more often however I agree. However I don't think this whole idea of "holding upkeep" is going to do anything other than create a bunch of empty holdings.

    Played it for a month. It’s shit. We going to argue semantics? The game is shit.


    Also people also said the combat patch was going to ruin the game. Funny only certain people have left and I see new people playing daily.

    You say there will be empty holdings and I disagree.

    Imagine if you had to be active in a holding to own it. Imagine knowing that holding always has people because they have to be active to own it.

    All this talk about holding being empty or being full doesn’t really matter, all holding are mini safe zones waiting on player billboards so I can go red again killing players in there personal safe zones.

    you mean like running around checking empty holdings owned by the same person kind of work? Or maybe keeping stocked with mats to have gear bags for pvp kind of work? Lazy fucking entitled kids these days. so damn wrapped up in "do it for me" that they are afraid to do a little work.

    Need to remove repair shards from game make repair tools cost platinum and repair 100 HP at 10 HP per second max
    Reduce durability on repair hammers down to 10-20

    Options for buildings to auto repair for platinum



    Reduce the crafting costs of Warhulks and Ships by 95%. Make Orbs craftable with Platinum, remove the ability to Despawn Ships and Funhulks outside of Habor or Bank. Despawning should be instant at the cost of platinum.

    Increase mounted combat damage back to Old School values, add back mounted regeneration. Make all weapons and magic damage buildings at -90% damage; so Warhulks can be taken down by magic.


    Add a Skill "Tomb Stone Recall" with about 2 hour cooldown for the cost of platinum.


    Make cannons do 300% more damage (around 200 damage) with a 50% longer cooldown (around 10 seconds) or add enhanced Black powder and allow players to equip powder to the ammunition slot on the paper doll

    Not kids anymore, real job with real work to do, don't need a second one.
    But nice strategy there, people want istant gratification, you tell them to fk off, they do, complains about population.

    The upkeep thing I'm not sure about. Nor do I like an 8 hour activity window. That's too long a time to maintain city defense just so you don't have your platinum stolen. That will be a griefers paradise if you tie the two together. I would flip it, make theft available any time and you pay platinum to prevent it. Then I'd be ok with upkeep; if you're not active enough to buy theft protection to keep your maintenance fund going well then you're not active enough to keep a city. It would also prevent abuse by nutcupping clans and alliances shitting all over small to midlevel clans or PVE clans who can't really defend well. It decouples the non-siege PVP aspect from general city maintenance.

    Sounds good what about earning Platinum from sieges and PvP too?

    Sinks with upgrade able city's Tier 1-3 and can also make use of the dynamic placing system with props and perks from the tokens, to place in city with platinum points.

    Another idea a purchasable merchant that will randomly visit your city with rare items and rng items on its vendor, with high price for rares.

    you know, your wrong the 10+ mil that spend tons of time in ESO, and the 15 or so mil in WOW spending tons of time and many other games spending tons of time say otherwise. You quickie kids that cannot stay with the same woman or the same game for more than a few min are not as many as ya think. The quickie crew is a fad and like all bad ideas will fade overtime.

    I play both of them, they have istant gratification, in wow there is literally an istant max level token being sold and eso requires level 10 to be teleported into a rvr zone where every stats is equalized (and ofc rewards renown that you can use to buy equip).

    Have you ever played any other mmorpg other than darkfall?

    Darkfall players are some of the least “ quicky “ “ kids “ I have ever seen. Being forced to play other games because a) severs shut down for dfuw launch or b) game is hacked to shit by different design teams. The “ quicky “ “ kids “ are still around checking forums and waiting for content.
    FYI .your analogy of “kids” and ”quicky’s” is boarder line child predictor

    Add a "citizen" count/resource. Spawns NPCs around your buildings/houses that generate platinum. Enemy factions/clans can murder your citizens to steal your platinum.

    Buildable watch tower alerts you when your settlements are under attack and by whom, striking up cause for war.

    Lel, dynamic allied AI/empire building. What a dream.

    ya and you get all your gear max level instantly also right? cmon tell me another one kid

    Yes I have played most of them and none of them were instant gratification. SWG huge time sink, UO not as bad but allowed different build combinations so still massive time sink, SWTOR one of the worst time sinks getting gear for pvp and pve, ESO So many different builds and gear sets to grind for yet another big time sink + raid that could take weeks or months to master. I haven't played wow nor interested in doing so but even if you can have a toon maxed for money you still have to get that gear and that is where the real time sink is, leveling a toon is stupid easy in comparison just like it is in DF now. So again your full of shit and trying to make your narrative make sense by tossing in half truths hoping everyone is a fucking idiot and unable to see through it....well it failed
    --- Post updated ---
    they were 100% if they did df1 but a lot of the kids in here crying are not or they were young before and had no idea what a life was before and now are faced with having to do a life and a game. I had family back then and I have a family now. Means you don't have as much time but it doesn't mean it should just be done for ya.

    If you don't have time to go bowling every day, you don't shorten the game to 3 frames + have the company roll the ball for you just so you can be involved daily. It doesn't make any sense. I get the time restrictions I have dealt with it personally but I don't expect companies to dumb shit down or tailor it for me personally.

    Your the weird fuck combining quickie and kids....I think of quickie and I think of a woman, seems you think of quickie nd bring up kids, I mean that is some weird shit. KID

    You never been right and It's not gonna change.

    Bgp thinks the same way as you do, never acknowledge a mistake, never change their minds, blame the users if things don't work out.

    The only real successful moment of this mess was after the "pivotal moment", which means "we are wrong => we are gonna take a different approach", which is the only sane thing to do.
    But as soon they got back some population they immediately went their own way again.

    Now I'm not even willing to deal with the little tediusness that there is left, I've given away my bank, if you want me back you'll have to provide much more, I'm talking about an npc with premade bags.
    If you are not interested on having people like me back then no worry, daoc still has more active players than roa ever had, and who knows... maybe after bgp someone else will take the shot... be positive

    lol bye
    No rebuttal? involving any sort of actual sense being made? Just a " YOUR WRONG CAUSE, CAUSE JUST CAUSE I SAID SO"
    Your dumb I am right and you are wrong this is an MMO and MMO's just happen to require a bit of your time put fourth, funny you have been playing the game this long and decided to call it quits after losing a discussion with me. GSO Crybaby ass nerd.
